“Mary stayed in touch with Vili in a lot of different ways,” Olsen said to Walters. “One way was to send out messages in ... milk bottles she was [producing] milk in prison for her babies, so she put little notes in the caps and they went out.”
Olsen said Letourneau also sent out audiotapes and had fellow prisoners call Fualaau for her, as she was forbidden from contacting him while in prison.
Letourneau herself spoke about the bottle messages in an interview with Dateline in 2006. She said the messages in the bottles were coded for Fualaau.
RELATED: It seems that Mary Kay Letourneau will do anything to keep Vili Fualaau from leaving her.
‘”104’ was ‘I love you,'” Letourneau told Josh Mankiewicz. “And if I wasn’t feeling good, or if something was going wrong—there was another one. And then I would write names of songs down. Because the lyrics express how I feel.”
Fualaau said the messages made him “feel really good, really happy about it.”
